Hit and run in Hope

Police are looking for witnesses to the 7th Avenue accident on Saturday night

Hope RCMP are looking for witnesses to a hit and run on Saturday at about 7 p.m.

A cyclist was riding northbound on 7th Avenue on the right side of the right hand lane. Just before reaching Park Street, the cyclist was hit from behind by a passing truck and suffered minor injuries.

“As he looked up after being hit, he saw a large white truck drive away from the scene,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “This could have resulted in more serious injuries and we are asking for the public’s help in identifying the vehicle responsible.”

Early reports indicate that the white truck also had a black canopy on the back. It is also possible that the vehicle would have minor damage to the front passenger side bumper.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
